Speedway Travel and Tours Limited was set up 35 years ago by my father Ernest William Edusei. It was the first ever travel and tour company ever to be set up in Ghana and West Africa for that matter.  The company was instrumental in organising a tour for the first ever tour concert in Africa for all members of the SOUL TO SOUL musical extravaganza in 1971.  Some of the world famous  musical artistes of this show were Tina Turner, Carlos Santana, late Wilson Pickett, Roberta Flack, Ike Turner, Voices of Eastern Harlem, famous jazz musicians like Billy Cobham, Billy Evans, to name a few. The tour was the first for all artistes to Africa.

Benefits of Joining a Group

Cost Effective: It is cheaper to travel in larger numbers, aside from the security that comes travelling to new destinations in a large crowd. You have a better chance of getting discounts than you would as a lone ranger.

Personal Attention of Guide: Small groups allow for more time at each site and greater personal attention from the tour guide.

Questions and Answers: At Akwaaba City we enjoy our time of "KASA" - a period in the day where the group gets a chance to relive their day’s adventure and share opinions as a collective group.

Lasting Friendships: Our tours are created to stimulate companionable adventures; to build and form lasting friendships without feeling like a part of the crowd.

Land Package:

For every 15 paid persons: You will receive a complimentary land package based on half double occupancy for the duration of the tour.

For every 15 paid rooms: You will receive a complimentary land package, which includes a complimentary single room for the duration of the tour.

             **NB: Please note that this offer does not include meals.            


Airline Package:

Reduced Airfares : If you encourage your group (comprises of 20 or more passengers) to use one of our preferred airline (North American Airline or Delta Airlines) which offers non stop flights from JFK or Dulles Airport in Washington DC to Accra, Ghana; your group will qualify for special group reduced fares.
